From Access to Inclusion Workshops from Arts & Disability Ireland

Taking place from 11 – 22 October, the final strand of From Access to Inclusion Workshops have been designed to enhance learning and engagement, to explore and dismantle barriers, and to challenge assumptions.

Using a suite of resources, exercises, and discussions facilitated by leading thinkers, these interactive and hands-on Workshops will support arts professionals as they work to make accessible and inclusive arts and cultural programmes and initiatives.

Highlights include:

Every Type of Access on Thursday 14 October from 2 – 3:30pm will be led by Brina Casey and Caomhán Mac Con Iomaire, Education Officers at the National Gallery of Ireland. This session will detail some of the ways in which the gallery have incorporated accessible features into their public programme, such as slower pace public tours suitable for sufferers of chronic pain, gained recognition as an autism-friendly institution, and developed an active programme of tailored, onsite and offsite projects for groups with disabilities.
